Vox Nostra with Vlad Smishkewych

Sunday 7 – 10am

Vox Nostra with Vlad Smishkewych Sunday 22 October 2017



The ancient celebrations of Samhain may have predated the Christian feast of All Hallow's Eve, but late October has always been a time for slightly spooky happenings. Vlad explores some of the darker tendencies of the season with music from over ten centuries, including very, very early Irish songs, duets and trios about witches and wizardry, and perhaps even a medieval recipe for pumpkin pie. Halloween gets a very special early music treatment, with tunes good enough to raise the dead! (Or keep the spirits happy, at the very least.)
 

Vox Nostra with Vlad Smishkewych

Musical make-believe or reconstructed beauty? Poetry of an 11th century troubadour king features on today's Vox Nostra.
